Well honestly, I don't think that madskillz could have killed him before running out of MP anyways, unless every single one of his hits connected and he conserved MP from dashing less often too. Sometimes when you PvP, it's just so hopeless that it's not worth putting the effort; you know they don't play that well, but it's literally impossible for you to win or get a kill due to gear. On your list, SiCCnD and Ihavemagic are easier since you can just infinite lock them if you have no other choice. Xandiel, well... good luck with that? SiCCnD's def is pretty low anyways.
Well, you can't really judge someone's level in PvP by 1 match. Moods, thoughts, etc all affect how well you play in PvP. But I'd agree that video isn't one of his best PvP matches lol.
Actually, I can't see what you mean by recklessly rushing in after RPs. iirc he only dashed in twice after RPs, but wasn't punished for them lol.
Its not about killing them, its finding new ways to approach the opponent, or deal damage against that type of class. A good example from pvping with Sic, was that he didn't lag much, but rather it was the way he utilized lag dash, and skills that show animation in only one area(windmill) to confuse people, and taking that intiative to seemly warp behind you and catch you in a combo. From my experience after messing around in pvp, if you time your hide perfectly with lag dashes, It'll make it look like you've pulled off a DBZ teleport move where you show up at random places. After the Opponent goes off screen, you can dash away a little further, use windmill and sneak up on the other player which is what sic does alot.
I do however agree that you can't judge someones skill in pvp from watching one video.
From the way I view his movements, I would consider them reckless. Although thats entirely my own oppinion as everyone thinks differently. I'll give you an example, at around 2:12 secs into the video, right after RP, he rushs in with an ambush then gets crazy soul FD'd in the face. Instead of using ambush right off the bat, daggers/swift > ambush would have been a better choice. At least thats what I think.
Lastely, there is no true inf lock for HQ's, its all based on luck. The only inf lock that I know of thats definately inf, is if its used on another HQ, PF, Gren, or Myrm assuming you have enough aim to hit 100% of the time. Then again, if they're smart they can avoid it.
skills needed for inf combo:
lvl 5 cut down (can hit opponents mid air max level)
lvl 5 launch (can hit opponents mid air at max level)
lvl 1, or 2 ariel kick (harder to perform 3 or higher)
any lvl upper screw driver
1) upper screw driver
2) catch thier air tech with ariel kick
3) Perfectly time Launch before they touch the floor
4) Perfectly time Cut down before they touch the floor
5) air frenzy if your cooldown for upper screw driver/areial kick isn't finished
6) if you air frenzied, use ariel kick, if not use upper screw driver
7) ariel kick
8) repeat from step 3
my apologies to any HQ's that already knew the secrets described above but wanted to keep it low profile.
while I'm at it, I'll give away another pvp secret for any class to use just because I want to. ever wonder how the other player dissippears after you knock them down giving them invincibility status until they reappear?
It's because they were holding down the left, right, up, or down key while being hit in that one instance they were knocked down while they were dashing. in other words, to perform this pvp trick, simply hold down any directional button while in a dash while your getting knocked down. Doesn't work 100% of the time.
Just the heck of it as well, one more for any HQ out there to abuse.
Moonwalk doesn't give invincibility status during the first start up seconds, HOWEVER, if your knocked up into the air, you will fall down and not be hit by anything else, as you fall you lag on the other players screen then dissippear assuming you roll away, this gives you time to quickly dash in and get in a combo as invincibility status lasts for just about 1 more second after you roll away. for reference, refer to my pvp video with kimimaro, I'm sure I used it on him somewhere in that match.
